secretary, colin powell, the very opposite of being newt gingrich on "meet the press" yesterday. let's lift seen in mr. gingrich does this from time to time with a big bold statement and he does it occasionally to make news and also stir up dust. it may appeal to the fringe elements of the party, but i don't think it appeals to all republicans. and i don't think it appeals to the whole country. this kind of chatter he's a kenyon channeler and all of this sort of stuff makes a lot of news. and you will find that governor palin and people on the right side of the political spectrum and along with the tea party move the really are getting a lot of attention, a lot of news and a lot -- they're making a lot of noise and they're making a lot of -- a lot of chatter throughout our political system. and that's fine. that's good. but i don't think anybody should grab that and think that's the entire country. >> you know, when i hear him speak, guys, it reminds me of the old days growingun. comes back from the crusades and saves the day from robinhood. the good anyways come home and there is colin pow

june of last year. at 18 months, it was the longest since world war ii. mr. obama's problem, of course, is that just as in the bush era, economic growth does not mean the middle class is growing too. unemployment continues to hover just below 10%. yesterday, obama endorser colin powell, bush's secretary of state, said the president had overwhelmed americans by trying to do too much. at his town hall today, the president defended his record by pointing out how much of what he has done protects americans from really being overwhelmed. >> if you have a mortgage or a credit card or any kind of financial dealings out there, as a consequence of the changes we made, the credit card companies can't increase your interest rate without notifying you, and they can't increase your rate on your previous balances. in terms of getting a mortgage, you can't have a mortgage broker steer you to a mortgage that ultimately is going to cost you more money, because maybe they're getting a financial incentive to do so. those things are now against the law. so there are a whole host of protections in there. y
